Big Ideas: Certain questions can be answered by collecting data. These questions are called statistical questions. The answers to those questions, or the data collected, will vary. In this lesson, students will learn to identify and create statistical questions. The question, itself, will determine how and what kind of data is collected. These concepts provide a foundation for understanding that the type of data collected determines how to best organize and be visually represented either in a table, chart, or graph. Vocabulary: variability, vary, statistical question, data, in general Special Materials: None
